James McKnight Tombstone, St. Clair Cemetery

In memory of
JAMES McKNIGHT
Who departed this life
August 22, 1844
In the 51 Year
of his age

This eroded tombstone in the mid-nineteenth-century poster style is almost illegible most of the day; but if you catch it just as the sun is hitting at its most oblique angle, you can just about read the inscription.
